I admit it. I have always suspected some sort of pathology associated with D&D players (though I married one). Apparently, the 7th Circuit Federal Appeals Court think it's worse. According to the New York Times, a lifer in Wisconsin brought suit saying that his rights were violated when Waupun Correctional Facility banned Dungeons & Dragons and confiscated the prisoner's game and a lengthy handwritten manuscript that he had composed.
The prisoner, who was incarcerated for bludgeoning and stabbing his sister's boyfriend to death, claimed that he had been D&D enthusiast since childhood and that the confiscation violated his 1st and 14th Amendment rights. Gang specialists suggested to prison officials that the materials could lead to gang activity and escape fantasies.
While the court did not specifically ties D&D to escape fantasies, it did rule against the prisoner.
Me thinks this particular person had worse issues to deal with than his gaming....
